    Figured its time I finally get Otter “Next Year” Overland Bus going on this forum since I have talked about it forever. Just starting the get parts and metal to get this done next year. Hoping for a BBB 2020 debut.  Never thought I would be a split bus owner but this group and a few other individuals changed that. Below are the pictures from the day I picked it up in Moab in Fall of 2017.

    I wasn’t given a chance between Sonny and my dad to put a transmission in it to transport it. They were just as excited, maybe even more excited.

    Here is the paint removed back to original paint, turned out really good! Just need some areas repaired and blend paint back in.

    Used oven cleaner, goof off graffiti remover and aircraft stripper in that order over the winter. About had a heat attack from the stress as all of it seemed very tough on the paint and had to quickly neutralize it.

    Then I tried Back to Nature Multi Strip in the Spring, put it on let it sit for about 10 minutes and removed it with little or no paint damage. Found it on sale at Home Depot. I will use it every time now as even if it dried it didn’t damage the paint. The heat from the sun is the biggest ingredient I found.  IMG_20181008_152245181

    Yes it will need everything new, slowly buying parts so I can hit it hard when the time comes. I am willing to spend most of the money there as its the lifeblood of the vehicle. I am surprised the more I look into it that the body work that it wont be bad, I thought it was worse initially.

    Yes it is looking to be very solid, mainly rockers, floors, outriggers and jack points are the worse part. The white paint job protected the originnal paint nicely.
